As Emily Litella used to say on SNL, "Never mind."
I checked "Alexander Lazlo" at the USCO and got over 500 hits for his music! Most of it has titles like "Horses gallop," "Car chase," and generic things like that. Looks like his wife renewed every damn thing he ever did! (Don't know if that's even legal to do on a work for hire.) Since these were all renewed in the '80's, and since she hasn't complained about Attack of the Giant Leeches, Beast from Haunted Cave, Rocky Jones, Racket Squad, The Amazing Mr. X,
Midnight Manhunt, Scared Stiff, The Great Flamarion, Dangerous Passage or One Body Too Many falling into the public domain, then we're probably okay.
I'd speculate that she put together an album of her husband's music and renewed the copyrights to cover it, but I don't know enough to make a judgement.
Sorry for the fuss.

And as Emily Litella also said, "It's always something...if it's not one thing, it's another!" Hah! ;)

The Great Flamarion (to state the obvious) was 1945.

You know. It's entirely possible that Mrs. Laszlo, 30 years after renewing already 30 to 40 year old copyrights in the 80s (that make 60 to 70 year old copyrights, roughly, as of this year), is herself now no longer among the living and thus, there may be no one around to enforce copyright.

Just stating a plausible, but grim possibility.
